Evergreen Journey Counseling
Play Therapy Services
I am extensively trained and qualified in this area of expertise. This service is a favorite among many of my clients. Play therapy is based on the concept that play is a child’s natural medium of expression.
The counselor provides a safe and protected space where the child is able to communicate through actions and play the brain's unconscious material. Play is their main form of communication.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
My specialization in processing trauma using EMDR will help guide you through emotionally charged experiences of past traumatic events so your brain can reprocess the information. Get in touch today and help your brain integrate such painful experiences using EMDR tools and techniques and start taking control of your life.

Theraplay® is a therapeutic approach that focuses on attachment.
It is ideal for families struggling with attachment, for children in foster care and for families by adoption.
Theraplay® principles work on helping parents and caregivers reestablish the attachment piece by engaging in nurturing activities to enhance their bond. The counselor is a witness and guide of this unfolding healing journey. I am trained in Theraplay Level 1, Level 2 and MIM. For more information, please check The Theraplay Institute at https://theraplay.org/what-is-theraplay/

In the sandtray therapeutic approach, we invite the unconscious psyche to initiate and direct the healing journey. The counselor does not interpret the process but instead provides a safe and protected space for the process to unravel. Like this, the unconscious mind will come to the surface using sand and figurines to process internal energy that needs to be processed to enhance internal healing. The counselor's presence holds the space for the client's processing journey. I have received over 200 hours of training in sandtray and have done multiple presentations regarding this subject.
